Some background to the Merv Marshall Trophy

Merv Marshall was Groundsman at the club in the 70s and a Life Member of the club. He was a good player who felt that it would be nice if someone other than the “gun” tennis players were to receive a prize each year, and offered to donate the Merv Marshall Trophy. This Trophy is awarded to a member for Sportsmanship / Outstanding Service.
